Boards are our business
The WATSON  Academy Difference

Governance education – with you, about you, for you.

One size does not fit all when it comes to governance. That’s why WATSON adapts our practical Governance Academy education to you.

Why Learn from WATSON?


Each governance course starts with a survey to understand our participants.  We tailor the agenda, topics and activities to match your needs.


Our training courses are delivered in concise, one to two-day sessions.  Dedicated time to learn without having to quit your day job.


Intentionally kept small to ensure you can ask questions and apply the learning.  Thanks to our breadth of governance-consulting experience and deep thought leadership, you will learn the latest in good governance.  Boards are our business.

Board Specific

Intensive sessions designed to help your board hone in on the most important governance issues challenging your board.

Governance Practitioners

Learning happens when the right people are in the room. Our faculty are governance experts who stay current on the issues, theory and trends impacting you and your board. Plus, they know how to work a room.

Adult Education Focused

Developed specifically on adult education principles – real and relevant issues, interactive and conversational, hands-on activities, peer sharing to build on personal experience and knowledge.  Learn with the best.

Bottom line? You’ll make a difference in your next board meeting.

Governance training like no other.
